Safeguarding – Emotional Support for DSLs and Pastoral Teams

Leadership Edge

Safeguarding is of the utmost importance in all education settings. Over time, the growth in the burden of responsibility for schools has only been matched by the increasing complexity and potential severity of safeguarding issues.

Alongside the growing appreciation of the challenges faced by young people, there is rightly a similar realisation of the need to support those providing this intensive, often high-stakes and emotionally demanding safeguarding and pastoral care.

ASCL Professional Development and Leadership Edge Coaching Services for Safeguarding Professionals, will enable participants to understand how to safely process the emotional burden this work can place on safeguarding staff.

Leadership Edge has an established credibility for assisting schools, academies and trusts to embed a sustainable coaching culture across and throughout organisations. Their team consists of 20 highly skilled wellbeing and leadership coaches, trained to enable each participant to safely decompress and access their own inner resourcefulness and resilience. All of their coaches have a background in school leadership.

1-1 Wellbeing Coaching
These 60 minute sessions provide an invaluable opportunity for staff involved in safeguarding to process the emotional toll of their vital work. Confidential, non-judgmental and non-directive, the coach will encourage reflections and practices which help the participant to maintain their own wellbeing.
All sessions are provided remotely via Teams or Zoom.

3 sessions (over one school term or business quarter): £360 + VAT
6 sessions (over one school year or calendar year): £700 + VAT
